Defense and aerospace group Saab said on Wednesday it had got an order for delivering multispectral static camouflage systems to the Canadian Army.
“Saab has been awarded a contract to produce multispectral static camouflage systems for the Canadian Army. Deliveries of the order will take place during 2019,” said in the company’s statement.
The order contains a customer specific Woodland version of the Ultra-Lightweight Camouflage Screen (ULCAS) and is a finalization of a long-term contract, received in 2013.
“This order will provide the Canadian Army with the most advanced camouflage system in the world, which brings true multispectral protection against detection by hostile threats to the end user”, says Simon Carroll, Head of Saab Canada.
Military operations often require flexible camouflage that can be used for a number of different objects and situations while still delivering reliable protection against advanced sensors. The ultra-lightweight camouflage is an advanced multispectral camouflage net that provides unrivalled signature protection for vehicles and other objects in static positions.
Saab’s advanced camouflage technology products have been exported to more than 50 countries.
Saab offers a unique package of camouflage systems and force protection solutions developed to limit an enemy’s ability to detect and engage. Various solutions and configurations are available to protect camps, vehicles as well as individual personnel in any type of terrain or environment.
